On Tuesday, the 27th of May, the Mathematics Department hosted the 2014 Inter-House Mathematics Competition.  It was a team-based event, which required the boys to collaborate effectively, in order to answer questions which tested the speed of their mental arithmetic. 

For two hours the Clegg Hall buzzed with activity, as ninety of our boys engaged in a mental race against each other and the clock.   De Villiers won both the junior (grades 8 and 9) and the senior (grades 10, 11 and 12) sections of the competition.  Based on the success of the event, consideration may be given to making this an official inter-house event in 2015.  Sincere thanks go to the support staff and the Ladies’ Association for helping with the organisation of the event.
